Consultancy firm TLM has opened a European HQ in Dundalk, with the New York-based company bringing a dozen jobs to the town.
TLM’s new Louth office will provide project management consultancy on data centre projects throughout Europe, giving the company a firm foothold in the EU.
The 12 roles made available will be in project management positions, with recruitment of engineers already underway.
Data capital of Europe
The objective of the new office will be to better serve existing European clients as well as several US-based clients looking to locate in Europe and, potentially, Ireland.
“TLM is very excited to add to the growing list of companies based in Ireland,” said Michael Carron, who co-founded TLM.
“We are also looking forward to building the newest, most technically advanced data centres in Ireland. It is no secret that Ireland has become the data capital of Europe.
“Ireland has all of the key elements needed for the ultimate data centre – cool weather, connectivity, and a qualified workforce.”
The office in Dundalk town was chosen because of the availability of key management and personnel, as well as access to talent in the surrounding areas.
“Brexit has cause for concern to many UK-based companies, Ireland will see an influx of companies looking to set up in Dublin and service Europe,” said Mary Glynn, vice-president of TLM’s business development.
“TLM is ready to assist clients and manage their relocation. Although we specialise in data centres, that is not all that we do. We can oversee any construction project from beginning to end.”
